Originally Aired: 03/01/19 – We review Deadly Class. We talk with Jahnoy Lindsay of Luke Cage: Everyman. We also speak with James Armstrong of Toronto ComiCo.

Show Notes:

We also talk with artist Jahnoy Lindsay! Jahnoy has done some great work for Marvel comics in the past couple of years on She-Hulk and the digital-first Luke Cage: Everyman. He’ll be on to talk about these comics as well as to promote his upcoming appearance at the Toronto Comicon (March 15th to 17th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre).

Our review of Deadly Class starring Benedict Wong, Benjamin Wadsworth and Lana Condor. Based on the graphic novel of the same name comes an unlikely coming-of-age story set against the backdrop of unsanitized 1980s counterculture. A homeless, disillusioned teen named Marcus is recruited into Kings Dominion, a secret academy for the Deadly Arts, where he struggles to find his place among a community of the deadliest characters in the world — literally fighting every day for survival. It is in this struggle he tries to find purpose and family in an unlikely group of outcast misfits who plan to use their skills to really change the world for the better… by breaking every rule there is.

We talk with one of the organizers behind the Toronto Comicon (and a good friend of the show) James Armstrong. The Toronto Comicon has got some great guests and programming coming your way to make this March Break a memorable one. James will be on to tell us all about the lineup of celebs and comic creators as well as some of the great displays and activities throughout the weekend.

It was a great show!
